Bracken Moor

Alexi Kaye Campbell
 
After years apart two families come together to rediscover their lost friendship. As they try to move forward they are plunged into a terrifying encounter with the past. Struggling to make sense of the extraordinary events that unfold before their eyes even the strongest of beliefs are shaken to the core.

Set against the economic crisis of the 1930s, this boldly theatrical tale of grief and denial by Alexi Kaye Campbell ( The Pride, Apologia, The Faith Machine) is vividly brought to life by Shared Experience and the Tricycle Theatre, directed by Polly Teale.

Alexi Kaye Campbell
 
Somewhere inside me a kind of betrayal. Of what? Of whom? I don't know. But the sense, the overwhelming sense, of betrayal.

Alternating between 1958 and 2008, and featuring the same three people, forever thirty-something, living similar but radically different lives, The Pride examines changing attitudes to sexuality over a period of 50 years, looking at intimacy, identity and the courage it takes to be who you really are.

An incredibly bold and mature first play, reminiscent of Noel Coward’s Design For Living and Kevin Elyot’s My Night with Reg, The Pride will spark painful twinges of recognition in all of us. Frequently dark and troubling, the play offers magnificent roles for its three main characters.
